I was able to remove eight sellers from a product listing of mine; this could change at any moment though. And I did it without filing a complaint with Amazon. For this $25k Challenge update I want to provide you with some steps on how to remove sellers from a listing.
My Three-Step Process
I added the trademark “Sapone Soap Mold” to my product. Having a trademark on your product is imperative. I paid money to register my trademark but it is not necessary. You simply have to be the first to use your desired trademark, document it and add it to your product or package.

I ordered product from each of the sellers on my listing. Because I have a trademark on the product, these sellers are in violation of Amazon’s policy.
After the product shipped, I wrote each seller to inform them of my plan. I told the sellers that I ordered their product to prove to Amazon that they were committing a policy violation. I told them that if they removed their listing, I would not file a complaint. And that I planned on keeping their product just in case they ever relist it. If it happens, I will be filing a formal complaint with Amazon.
After completing my three steps, they all removed their listings. I did have another seller show up on the listing but I followed the same process.
If a seller would not have removed their listing, I would have filed a formal complaint with Amazon. Amazon requires proof that a seller has violated your trademark—that’s why it’s so important to actually order the product.
